During the summer of 1744 the East Indiaman Götheborg finally reached Canton only to be faced with a new disaster. Their warehouse had been destroyed by fire. Some tea and porcelain had been salvaged with the assistance of the British next door. We have found huge amounts of scorched porcelain shards during our excavation of the wreck site thus confirming the story. Heavily overladen they left Canton in January 1745 with 2677 chests of tea, some 200 000 pieces of porcelain and the normal assortment of bric-a-bracs to the beloved ones back home. The 19th of February water was brought onboard in Niewe Bay at Java.
